Great app for calculating Flow Rate (volume/time) and Drip Rate (number of drops/time).
Thank you all for the thousands who bought the app. Please rate or recommend to your peers if you liked the updated version so I'd be able to make necessary changes as needs arises. The current price is a promo price.
This app includes more than 50 drugs used in critical care unit such as ICU, CV-ICU, PCU, Telemetry, and other special care unit.
This app is designed for nurses and other medical care personnel who are responsible in the administration of critical care drugs. It is a tool for the medical personnel a way of double checking their calculation in the hope of preventing medication errors.
There was no intention of including the drops per minute in this drip calculator. These drugs are intended to be delivered via an IV pump because of the danger of it to cause harm if the drip rate are not regulated properly. However, for educational purposes and requests of the student nurses who have seen the app as part of the Smart Nurse bundle, the drip per minute calculation has been included here.
This app also include indications, standard and maximum dosages, titrations, contraindications, and nursing responsibilities or considerations during the course of administration of the drug.
If you already own Smart Nurse app, then there is no reason to buy this app. Drip Calculator is part of the Smart Nurse bundle.
Improvements with the functionality of the app for the new iOS.
Ratings and Reviews
As a pedi/neon transport nurse, I frequently administer meds that require weight-based dose calculations. Although I always do the calculations manually and have team members check my math, we use this app regularly as a 3rd check. It's easy to use, doesn't have a lot distracting info, and works offline. I love it and recommend it.
I love this app. I am a flight nurse and use both the calculation and compatibility features all the time. Unfortunately, I updated to iOS 11 and now it will not work. 😩 Please update it to work with iOS 11!
I love this update. More info than ever and gives me option to change from weight based to non weight based.
